I wasn't going to bother much more with this, but since the left and some of the media are still wetting themselves over it, here are a few points about Key's so called gaffe.
1- Michael Cullen said as much a few years back.
2- Michael Cullen, as a former history lecturer, should have a better grasp of NZ history too. But maybe that is why he said what he said in 2005.
3- Michael Cullen is Treaty negotiations minister so should't he also be accounted for his views on history? Where is Pita Sharples now?
4- The governor general also echoed Keys comments on history.
5- Other historians, as the Herald notes, also back Key's account.
6- And we have Cullen attacking Key, forgetting what he said a few years back, until a reminder forced his silene.
Hip, hip, hipocracy!
